Happy Mother's Day



It's been a rainy a week in Ithaca, but the hawk nestlings don't have to worry! Even though they have grown and aren't quite as easy to sit on as when they were small, Big Red makes sure all three are under her body as she shelters them from a 30 minute downpour. Watch the hawks live at http://allaboutbirds.org/cornellhawks.

This is so sweet...they are too big now to get all the way under her. I hope you have a great day!
